Nail Of The Day – Ciaté Sugar Plum & Stamping With Pueen 74

Hi there! I’ve got a Nail Of The Day post for you today.

For this mani I painted my nails with 1 coat of Ciaté’s Sugar Plum. And then I sponged on another coat of polish.

Why? Well, the bottle is almost empty, and it was next to impossible to get any polish out of the bottle.

There’s still a little polish left in the bottle, but it won’t be enough for a full mani. It might be enough for 2 accent nails – we’ll see… 🙂

Now back to this mani! The stamping plate I used is Pueen’s 74 plate (you’ve seen it before, and it’s part of Pueen’s Stamping Buffet collection).

And the black polish I stamped with is NYC In A Minute 001 Evil.

I’m really happy with this mani. What do you think? Feel free to comment. And thanks for stopping by! I appreciate it. 🙂

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel Salon Pro 636 Hooray Henry & MoYou London Doodles 07

Hi there! I hope everyone had a good weekend. 🙂

I’m starting the new week with a mani post. I really like how this mani turned out, so let me tell you how I did it.

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel Salon Pro 636 Hooray Henry. This polish is almost a one-coater. Great quality!

I wanted a cute mani, so I grabbed one of my favourite cute stamping plates, MoYou London Doodles 07, and I went to work! 🙂

The black polish I stamped with is Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 430 Black Satin.

Nail Of The Day – Astor Fashion Studio 138 & Stamping With Pueen 74

Hi there! Today’s post is another Nail Of The Day post.

For this mani I painted my nails with Astor Fashion Studio 138. Since orange is one of my least favourite nail colours, I decided to stamp.

I used Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 430 Black Satin as my stamping polish.

The images are from Pueen’s 74 plate (which is part of Pueen’s Buffet Leisure collection).

If you’d like to know more about stamping, I’ve written an entire tutorial which covers everything I wish I had known when I started stamping. 🙂

Nail Of The Day – Astor Fashion Studio 085 & Stamping With Pueen 51

upload-1Hi there! Today’s post is about a simple mani I did the other day.

I painted my nails with Astor Fashion Studio 085. I like the cool pink shade and the easy to work with and quick-dry formula. However, this Astor polish is a scented polish – and the burned raspberry scent annoyed me quite a bit. Scented polish… who thought this up?

Anyway, let’s get to step 2! I wanted to see if Rimmel 60 Seconds 820 Hot Black To Go stamped well. So I gave it a try – and it worked out fine! Do you agree?

Oh, I almost forgot to mention the stamping plate… I chose Pueen’s 51 plate (which is part of Pueen’s Stamping Buffet collection) because it’s one of my favourite stamping plates. 🙂

I think this mani turned out quite alright. I like it! What do you think? Feel free to get in touch via the comments. And thanks for reading!

Nail Of The Day – P2 Color Victim 240 Joyful & Stamping / Nail Art Challenge #3 Yellow Nails

upload-1Hi there! Today’s post is about another mani that counts towards the 31 Days Nail Art Challenge (which I’m doing as a lifetime challenge). It’s mani #3 Yellow Nails.

For this mani I painted my nails with P2 Color Victim 240 Joyful (3 coats). This polish is a bright and sunny yellow with an old-fashioned frosty finish. It’s not really a favourite.

I used my unbranded Flowers 01 stamping plate and NYC In A Minute 001 Evil to stamp on the images.

I think this mani wasn’t great, but it was OK to wear it for two days. I got a few compliments, but that was only because the shiny yellow caught peoples’ eyes.

Feel free to comment if you want to. And thanks for stopping by! 🙂

Nail Of The Day – Halloween Nails Featuring NYC, Revlon, Sally Hansen, Essence & Bundle Monster / Nail Art Challenge #2 Orange Nails

upload-2Hi there! Today’s nail of the day post is another Halloween-themed mani. And it’s also my attempt at #2 Orange nails for the Nail Art Challenge. I think this mani is really spooky – do you agree?

I painted my nails with NYC In A Minute 001 Evil (pinky and index fingers, two coats) and Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure 844 On The Mango (ring and middle fingers, thumbs, two coats).

I chose images from 5 different stamping plates: No-name plates M94 (Konad dupe) and A13 (bats), No-name plate JQ-L18 (tree), Bundle Monster BM-224 (spooky mansion) and Bundle Monster BM-222 (pumpkin).

The two polishes I used to stamp on the image were my white Essence Stampy Polish and Revlon Colorstay 270 Stiletto (black).

I do like this mani. I could have paid more attention when I did the middle and index fingers, but I think the pinky and the ring finger look great. Feel free to let me know what you think. And thanks for reading!

Just in case you missed my last Halloween nail idea – cat nails – you can find the post here. And don’t forget to check out my monster slime & bats and my blood spatter manis. 🙂

Nail Of The Day – Foils & Stamping – Featuring Rimmel, Barry M & Pueen

Foils & StampingHi there! A couple of weeks ago I did a foils & stamping mani. I really liked how it turned out. So I thought I could try something similar – but this time with green base colours.

I selected Rimmel Salon Pro 544 Bewitch (index, pinky) and Barry M Gelly Hi-Shine Key Lime (thumb, middle and ring fingers) as my base colours.

Both polishes were almost opaque in one coat. Awesome stuff!

Then I used leftover foils to add some sparkle to the dark green polish.

The floral image I stamped on the light green polish is from Pueen’s 76 plate which is part of Pueen’s Buffet Leisure set.

I think this mani didn’t turn out as nice as the ‘original’ mani from a few weeks ago. But it looked OK. Please let me know how you like this mani. And thanks for stopping by! 🙂
